Support Groups for Patients and Families with Cancer

There are times throughout everyone's lives when the support of friends and family is not enough. Sometimes, spending time with others who have a shared or similar experience is the key to recovery. Being able to spend time discussing mutual experiences can help with feelings of depression, frustration, anxiety, and the struggle of coming to terms with a whole new way of life or lifestyle. Support groups, activities, and social events are not only fun, but encourage fitness and the maintenance of a healthy body and mind. With the proper support and encouragement, confidence can be renewed and restored.
